There's nothing worse than paying for a workout class only to find yourself completely distracted by pants that keep falling down. I'm convinced that high-waisted leggings were specifically invented to solve this problem, which is why every woman needs a pair (or five) in her closet. Although we're mainly sticking to virtual workouts these days, there's nothing like a great pair of leggings that can transform the whole mood of your workout. Narrow your search with these comfy-but-stylish options, ahead, that are cute enough to go straight from the gym to brunch—or, you know, just to brunch (when it's safe to do so again).
